  • V3 might not have been made for the customers.
    We'll never know. :)

  • Exactly!
    Finally someone guessed... :D

  • Because this is a site about photography equipment, so it's full of brand fanboys and so on.
    Hence, here it's easy to say "why don't we look at cameras as we look at cars".

    But if you'd go to a...

  • @Just a photographer

    What makes a camera "professional"?
    Yes, I think V3 has features, which might get attention of professionals. It might make their job easier and this is all that matters.

    I...

  • But there are at least 2 ways you can rate "greatness". You can do it by taking price into account or ignoring it.
    For me V3 is a great camera, because of what it can do. I'm sure in 1-2 years...

  • You miss the point. Other cameras are better in most things the V3 can do - true. But other cameras can't do what V3 can. This is the selling point.
    This is not an all-round camera made to compete...

  • @pacnwhobbyist
    There are always some better and worse ways to spend money. If someone earns $500/month, he should spend his $1300 on food or education...
    If someone earns $10000/month and likes...

  • @Fotogeneticist
    Nikon wanted to give V3 a high-end EVF, so they did. Decent magnification, 2.4 MP. But this is not a small thing any more. Adding a fixed one would result in a silly hump (like in...

  • D5300 and V3 use different AF technologies. You can't expect every camera to do 60fps just because one can.

    D5300 is the newest consumer SLR from Nikon (and the newest design, because D810 is just...

  • Most (all?) battery grips block the battery door.

    You don't like 20/60fps, don't use it. V3 lets you choose 10fps.
    It's obvious that 20/60 fps will seriously drain the battery, but that's how it...

  • Unimportant. A beginner (e.g. "soccer mom") can afford a full frame and "great photographers" must live with crops, mirrorless, compacts etc. What a great occasion this is, to exhibit jealousy, ...
  • Again: so? As I said: photography is not only about conceptual art. And not everyone wants to be popular, i.e. not everyone buys a camera to put pictures on the web and gather "likes". A.Hoyl asked ...
  • Replied in Why pay more?
    So? Camera does not improve your skills instantly. It can only make more things possible. Even if your "artist" makes better shots than 98% of people on this forum, a simple P&S might not be ...
  • Too late. Seriously, why don't some people read the topic before they reply?
  • @HowaboutRAW
    Canon 1D series have the largest OVFs among FF cameras. AFAIR A900 is the runner-up.
    The viewfinder in the S2:
    a) was small for medium format,
    b) didn't cover the whole frame, which is...

  • @HowaboutRAW

    A7, X-T1 - yes.
    M1, T, NX30 - no.

    I'm aware that not many people use a camera for few hours a day. But I'm also pretty sure, that this is not so uncommon at A7S price level.

    I...

  • First of all: they didn't take it away. What you're saying is just a sign of negative attitude towards Nikon 1 system...
    Someone else could say the made the EVF modular, so maybe even better than a...

  • Thing is though: the "realtime image preview" is still not very realtime-ish. And there are some other drawbacks, like the amount of energy continuous live view consumes. Also, many people still...

  • Replied in Sony A7
    He's already chosen Fuji X (few days ago), so this discussion is not about his needs anymore. We're exchanging our opinions and he is out shooting with his new equipment (hopefully). Actually, I ...
  • Replied in Sony A7
    Yes, it is definitely lighter. But I'm asking if this is a significant difference in real life situations. E.g. when you're shooting for 2-3 hours straight, will 1000g be really more exhausting ...
